Charged with Drug Cultivation in Columbus?
Columbus Drug Cultivation Defense Lawyer
Ohio lawmakers have enacted laws that have severe penalties for those who are cultivating marijuana. If you have only a couple of plants, you are in less serious trouble than those that have a large number, as law enforcement will assume that you intended to sell the substance. When the amount that is found to have been grown is over 1000 grams (approximately 2.2 lbs.) you will be facing a felony charge. When it is only a couple of plants, it is listed as a minor misdemeanor and there is no jail sentence for minor misdemeanors, although a conviction will still show on your criminal record. When you found to be in possession of over 200 grams of cultivated marijuana, the charges are felony charges. 200 grams is less than ½ a pound. It is crucial that you contact a Columbus drug cultivation defense lawyer at once if you have been arrested and charged with any cultivation offense. If you are not represented by a skilled criminal defense lawyer, you put yourself at risk.
